Maurice Jones-Drew says body is 23 in football years - NFL.com
Where are these veteran NFL running backs hiding the bodies? One day after we discovered that Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith believes Steven Jackson still possesses a 22-year-old's body, Jacksonville Jaguars star Maurice Jones-Drew told reporters he has the body of a 23-year-old. Jones-Drew claims his legs are so fresh because he split time with Fred Taylor early in his career and toted the ball just 86 times in 2012 due to season-ending Lisfranc surgery. With just one year left on Jones-Drew's contract, the Jaguars are more concerned with his training-camp availability than the wear-and-tear on his body.

Jaguars minicamp report: No rush on QB call
As Gus Bradley sees it, there’s no rush. That’s the Jaguars Head Coach’s view of the team’s starting quarterback situation, and General Manager David Caldwell said he agrees: Yes, there will come a time to name a starter at the position. But that time is not now. “We’ll just let it play out and play it by ear,” Bradley said Thursday afternoon following the third of three Jaguars 2013 minicamp practices at the Florida Blue Health and Wellness Practice Fields adjacent to EverBank Field.

Offseason program is over, but Jaguars' roster is far from a finished product | jacksonville.com
Since late February, the Jaguars have made 68 roster moves, jettisoning veterans, signing a handful of free agents and adding players with little or no NFL experience. And things are only getting started for general manager Dave Caldwell. While expressing satisfaction at the rate of improvement during the offseason program, which concluded with a minicamp practice Thursday, Caldwell was quick to say the roster churn won’t stop just because the players are starting a six-week vacation.
